Is Georgina Chapman Having a Girl?

05/03/2010 at 03:00 PM ET

She dressed Sandra Bullock, Gabourey Sidibe and Vera Farmiga for the Oscars, but expectant designer Georgina Chapman is mum about who will wear Marchesa to Monday night’s star-studded Costume Institute Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

“It’s top secret!” she told PEOPLE Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival and Cinema Society premiere of Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston.

Luckily, the pregnant British fashion designer and wife of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was far less secretive about her baby on the way, due in August.

“We’re really excited. I’m just trying to get everything done before Fashion Week so that I’m prepared for when she comes,” Chapman, 34, said.

Asked to confirm that they’re having a girl, Chapman replied, “Well, we don’t know. I’m calling it that because I have three stepdaughters, so I’m used to [saying] that.”

Glowing in a tiered Halston gown, Chapman also confessed to considering launching a Marchesa maternity line.

“It might not be a bad idea,” she said. And who better to offer tips for looking fabulous through each trimester?

“Every woman carries differently so it’s a whole process, learning how to dress a new body. It’s fun though,” she notes.

“I’m into tight things, loose things — everything! And actually Halston’s quite good for it. It works.”

I’d say it’s a 50/50 chance 😉
We have two little girls and just welcomed our first baby boy 4 months ago and I catch myself still accidentally using she and her when referring to him occasionally. Just this weekend I was talking to my friend about dropping ‘the girls’ off at their grandparents and my friend asked where the baby was LOL , when you are so used to saying on thing all the time it becomes habit.

Too bad she can’t dress herself. She looks awful in that picture.

But congrats on the baby.

Families with four children generally have a 3-1 split (3 girls, 1 boy or 3 boys, 1 girl). If the husband already has three girls, then I’m guessing this one is a boy.

Jae, I would love to see you in an outfit of your choosing next to her in the outfit above.
You most likely could not even come close to comparing to her in terms of style and beauty.
You’re so brave hidden behind your keyboard, trashing her appearance rather than maturely critiquing it.
Grow up and get over your obvious jealousy issues.
